CFA: Peace and Justice Studies Lecturer (part-time), Tufts University
Deadline: April 30, 2016
Peace and Justice Studies Lecturer (nontenure-track)
The Tufts University Peace and Justice Studies Program is seeking qualified applicants to teach four courses in AY 2016-17: Introduction to Peace and Justice Studies (PJS 001) in Fall 2016 and Spring 2017; Introduction to Conflict Resolution (PJS 150) in Fall 2016; and Genocide (PJS 150) in Spring 2017. Different approaches to all these courses will be considered, but each should reflect the broad, interdisciplinary nature of the Tufts program. Key topics for the Introduction to Peace and Justice Studies course include but are not limited to causes of war, post-conflict transitions, nonviolent social movements and other forms of civic action, feminist approaches to peace, conflict resolution, restorative justice, social inequalities, more personal “inner and outer” peacemaking, international organizations, and building peaceful institutions and peace culture(s). More information on the program can be found at our website: pjs.tufts.edu. A Ph.D. in the field or related disciplines is preferred.
